Whether you want to start a new museum volunteer program or revitalize an existing one, this toolkit will guide you toward the resources and framework you need to be successful and sustainable. By framework, we mean a combination of tools, policies, procedures, and systems you put in place to construct a well-run and sustainable volunteer program.

As you read through the toolkit, you will take stock of what you have in place already and what you’d like to have in the future. This will help you distinguish essential resources from aspirational ones and determine where to focus your energy and time. It will also create realistic expectations for your program which can be included in your museum’s overall strategic plan and build a case for budget requests, grant writing, and appeals to donors.

This toolkit will guide you in making day-to-day decisions and setting future plans for your program.
